Kind of interesting to draw attention to themselves like that, since they have a lot of ways of forcing the issue because activision relies on them for a lot of income, but they almost certainly won't.

If the termination isn't considered to be with cause, they have to give him 292 million dollars, so I'd say that's enough without having dirt on people, though he most likely has seen similar stuff from other board members too.

Being a sex pest was a perk of the job until like... 10 years ago. We're fighting to get out of hell.

i think the notoriously hellish AB workplace just randomly giving all their employees A FULL GODDAMN WEEK OFF is probably a more damning indictment than all these articles and whatnot

Yeah the week off is basically "AHAHAHA, what walk out? You can't walk out if we give you TIME OFF, right?"

Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised if, if they do end up going for cause, the allegation that he withheld information from the board ends up being more legally important.
